An update on my Fleecerly expotitions. Part of my NY resolutions was to rent the Lettuce Knit dye studio once a month and play around with colour. You see I have a lot of fleece left over (re: untouched) from an incident at the Royal Winter Fair a couple years back. My goal is to dye one batt a month, spin that dyelot the next month and knit it in the third month. So far I'm on target.
Up until about 2 weeks ago this 3lbs of Romni was in a tightly packed box from Wellington Fibres awaiting a hot date.
This is a lot of fleece. I am very very excited but the potential of it all. For my first date with myself I brought 3 of these batts.....for 3 hours and dyed one of them. Next time I'll prep the batt before getting to the studio so I can get right into the dying.
My first hand painted colourways as inspired by whatever was mixed up in the studio and me throwing some colours on some wet wool - no science.
Here are the greens together in some light after drying. I may have been hankering for some spring. There is yet one more blue that is getting spun right now.
God what a crappy picture....sigh. I promise there will be a prettier one of the singles any time now.
Until then - revel in the ballet dancers. I love that Fenner is "WTF'ing" me, it's what I imagine of what life will be like with a teenager full of bershon .
